Christmas seems to come earlier every year and in the busy worlds we live in and the non-stop lives we lead, there never seems to be enough time to put in place all of the amazing things we intended to do, to make the season magical. For most, the intentions we had are still in our ‘to do list’ or on the fridge door behind the You are What You Eat magnet marked ‘must do’ – yeah well who looks at that fridge magnet anyway!
Here is a time-saving idea that looks fabulous, is personal to you, is inexpensive and could end up being your new family tradition at Christmas.
** Christmas Tree Treats**
They are little organza bags available in various colours (to suit your theme) that are ready to go with pull tie ribbon. They look great on the tree, are filled with what you want, for whoever you want.
Who they are for is entirely up to you and could be: your own children; visiting children; dinner party guests; visiting family.
What they are for could be: Christmas day treats; advent daily treats; good behaviour treats; replacement for Christmas crackers; just to look good on your tree!
The colours can be; Christmas colours; colours to match ‘your’ theme; simple white or silver to show off the contents.
The contents are your choice, but be careful to make sure you have right size organza bag (various sizes available), but could include: Chocolate (of course); colourful sweets; small toys; Christmas cracker contents; messages and Christmas wishes.
Order right now for just in time for Christmas http://stores.ebay.co.uk/newworldsm/GIFT-BAGS-/_i.html?rt=nc&_fsub=2559068&_sid=206694772&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1581&_pgn=3
(1062 gift bags in various sizes & colours)
Alternatively you can get similar (but not the same choice) from local Hobby Craft (or similar large chain). You may be lucky to find them in your local craft store.
If you can’t or don’t get them in time – order them anyway! Put them away with the Christmas decorations for next year and be ‘well prepared’.

** MERRY CHRISTMAS **
